What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
GET INVOLVED! I know it's cliche, but it's true. Naz has over 50 clubs and organizations that cover absolutely anything you could want to do! There's The Gleaner and Sigilum, the student run newspaper and yearbook; the Undergraduate Association, Wilderness club, Ski team, foreign language clubs, numerous community service opportunities and so much more. And even if you think you might not have time for a full commitment to one of these clubs, but you still want to participate in that one event they are planning, no problem. Many of the clubs understand that as college students we are busy people and welcome students with any amount of time to commit to their club.
Also, take time to enjoy the Rochester area that surrounds campus. There are so many opportunities in the area to experience, just get out there to see them!
Alyson from Newark, NY
Take the classes seriously and just do the work. Talk to your professors, try to get to know them as they can help you a lot later. Take care of yourself, it's not worth it if you are unhappy or unhealthy. Definitely have fun! Read alot, too. Know what you are doing and why you are doing it.
Corinne from Penfield, NY
Be open and friendly. Look to others for help because it will always be there. Don't be shy, embrace who you are, everyone will surely accept you. It's hard to not fit in at Naz. You're never alone. I promise. Wait, that sounded creepy, not what I meant. Campus is actually SUPER safe. There's an emergency phone wherever you go, and you can get a creeper beeper to put on you keys. But I doubt you'll ever need them. Like I said, it's really safe.
Haley from Scotia, NY
Get involved! The Nazareth community includes some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Get to know your classmates by participating in the activities put on by the C.A.B and ResLife and join some of the numerous clubs that are offered from the Center for Spirituality to Ultimate Frisbee to Art.
Kathyrn from Canandaigua, NY
Don't push aside Nazareth because of the required classes every student has to take. There are a lot of required courses that we all have to take and while it may turn you off at first, it's actually pretty cool because you probably won't take those kinds of courses again for the rest of your college career and it broadens your range of knowledge. Also, prepare to get kind of tired of the food after a while; while it's all pretty good, after a while it seems like you don't have many choices. This being said, our food is still much better than a lot of other colleges. The majority of people at Nazareth are also genuinely friendly; it's a pretty small college so you see a lot of the same people around campus but there's such a good vibe!
Sierra from Harrisville, NY
Apply!! No matter what you think just apply. You may get in. I never thought I would get in, let alone get a scholarship. I ended up getting both. The school is amazing.
